How To Have A Clear Face Using Turmeric Inside Out

How To Have A Clear Face Recipe

Before I talk about how to have a clear face using a spice called turmeric, let’s briefly look at what this natural ingredient is.

What Is Turmeric?

Turmeric comes from the ginger family. It is a kind of spice used for its medicinal benefits to health in general and for cooking. You can find lots or turmeric in Asia. India and Pakistan produces lots of turmeric. In fact India has been using turmeric for centuries as Ayurveda medicine, for dyeing and cooking. Now turmeric is well known and used for its medicinal qualities.

And here I will talk about how turmeric comes in really handy for how to have a clear face conveniently and naturally.

In powder form, turmeric is deep orange and yellow. This spice or powder is used a lot to make flavorful curries. Since it has such a deep color, turmeric is also used for dyeing. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. I find the taste a little bitter, peppery and smell like mustard. When I make turmeric paste with just water, it looks like yellow mustard.

Turmeric recipe for how to have a clear face:

Face Mask Ingredientsturmeric recipe how to have a clear face

2 tablespoons of gram or chickpea flour

1 tablespoon of coconut oil, pure almond oil or olive oil

Half teaspoon of turmeric powder

Some yogurt – as needed to get a thick paste that you can apply onto your skin

An ice-cream stick (flat, wood ones) or I sometimes use my fingers  🙂

Facial cotton

Clean, dark colored face and hand towels (what I prefer) – this is because turmeric stains your stuff

What To Do:

  • Clean your hands and face
  • Mix all the above ingredients together to get a thick paste – mix in the yogurt bit by bit or gradually to get the paste texture you like.
  • Then apply the paste on to your face or skin (using the stick or your fingers). Do not let this paste get into your eyes and nose – this is a peppery spice so it will sting. If you do, quickly wash off with lots of water.
  • Leave the paste on for 10-15 minutes. Wipe off with facial cotton and warm water. Then wash off with warm water. And dab your face dry with a towel.

How To Have A Clear Face By Mixing And Matching

Let’s look at a couple of variations to mix and match ingredients with turmeric powder to make a handy mask recipe that helps with how to have a clear face.

There are 3 kinds of oils mentioned up there. You could use any one of them or use other oils you prefer or would like try out with. Some may even mix 2 oils like half a teaspoon of almond oil and half a teaspoon of coconut oil.

For how to have a clear face best you can with this recipe, after trying it out once, I’m pretty sure you would also need to fine tune the mixture and dosage to suit you.

Some have shared that when milk is replaced with yogurt, there is substantially less stain on the face and better for cleaning or rinsing the mask off later on. I am fine with both really, and I think as long as I don’t leave on for too long, both milk and yogurt work fine.

You could also mix some honey (raw honey is best) in to make this paste.

Do remember though to take everything in moderation. As they say, too much of a good thing can bring more harm than good. And do get your doctor’s advice before taking turmeric as a supplement, as the case with any other medication or treatment whatsoever.

You could also do a little skin test to test for allergies. You could apply the turmeric or the paste itself on the fold of your elbow. Leave on for 8-10 hours. If you see any negative skin reaction, go and see a doctor for more advice.
